I have ants in a bedroom wall (just above the top wood frame). If this gel is applied to that area, what problems might occur (ex: toxicity to a person in the future) when handling the wood to clean that area, putting up curtains, etc? Is there a time frame in which it becomes inactive (like sprays do)? Also, food is eaten in that room does the gel pose any health threat?
Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel will not pose any threat to food or people eating the food in a room where the gel has been applied. Simply contacting a small dab of the gel should not pose any type of health risk at all. If you would like to limit any contact or exposure, you can place the bait into a bait plate station instead of out in the open area on a wall.
